The Carter is closed today.
See American art through international eyes. From experimental abstractions to politically charged themes, this exhibition brings together nearly forty prints and drawings created by artists who immigrated to America from Europe during the first half of the twentieth century.
Commissioned for the reopening of the Carter, Puente Nuevo is an immersive experience of large-scale artwork made from the materials used to construct piñatas.
When you enter the museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self.
Commissioned for the Carter, this large-scale, site-specific installation looks like frozen, Technicolor vapor. Created out of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread, Plexus no. 34 draws attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium.
The Carter houses one of the great collections of American art, from historical landscapes captured on canvas to city streets seen through the lens of a camera. We’re regularly changing out these works, so each time you visit, you know you’ll encounter something you haven’t seen before.
